Never mind that shit, here comes RETURN TO DARK TOWER!  For anyone's who's played the original, it was perhaps the most unique board game ever made; one so interesting that - unlike most nostalgic games from the '80s - it still holds up in 2020 (I'm in the process of fixing the motor in my original).

Milton Bradley got it's ass kicked in a lawsuit which is why despite thousands of requests to re-issue the game, all that's left are the original batch of games.  Enter Restoration Games, a indie company that made its bones with "re-issues" of Fireball Island, who somehow got the rights to the name and tower concept.







Unlike the Fireball Island re-issue, this is an entirely new game.  Far more complicated with tens of thousands of potential new games, this new version does not use the tower for direct interaction - you use a smart phone for that - BUT the tower does a whole bunch of other sweet stuff, like spit out skulls on random player's lands, and light up various glyphs which give out clues.

Base game is $135, with various add-ons like minis and a sweet, huge, playmat costing $35 and up.  The kickstarter campaign is very sweet too, with the company adding on all kinds of freebies like foil art, sleeves for cards, new characters, yada as various stretch goals are met.  The next stretch goal is 8-bit sounds like the original game....


Ships early next year for sure, as the goal has already been met (and already far surpassed).  Can't wait.

Ok, yeah that's cool as hell.

I know, deciding which satan-worshipping pedophile should have access to nuclear weaponry can get pretty wiry.  But worry not, this is why we have the ‘Marketplace of Ideas’; so we can work our asses off to articulately plead for the mercy of psychopaths who will ultimately get their way anyway.

Only a couple of days left to back it (I did today).

They've already gotten enough to unlock 31 of the 38 stretch goals, most of which are super sweet.  

Perhaps even better news is that they just announced that you will be able to play either cooperative OR competitive play (previously only co-op mode was available).  The original was competitive only.

I'm guessing that at the very least it will be a good investment as a collectable.  Hopefully it's as cool to play as it looks.

That actually sounds pretty bad ass.
